Everton manager David Moyes is to sue a newspaper over comments made by England striker Wayne Rooney in the player's book.
Moyes, under whom Rooney played at Goodison Park as a teenager, has instructed his lawyers to begin proceedings against the Daily Mail who serialised the book.
The Scot's lawyer, Mel Goldberg, said this morning: "There are couple (of comments) but I think the main one is 'Moyes forced me out' (of Everton)."
Goldberg added on Sky Sports: "No manager wants to lose his best player and that was far from the truth."
Moyes is unhappy with several comments in 'Wayne Rooney: My Story So Far'.
Goldberg added on Sky Sports News: "He was surprised because he had a good relationship with Wayne Rooney, he tried desperately hard to him him and to see the headline 'Moyes forced me out' upset him a great deal.
"Their relationship had always been very good."
Rooney left Everton for Manchester United for £30million two years ago after breaking into the Toffees' first team as a 16-year-old and impressing for England at Euro 2004.Reuse content
